We are very excited to be flying to Holland on Thursday, May 10 and we want you to be a part of sending us off! We’re asking everyone to be a part of a “prayer event” the day we depart. [Read more...]
Latest from the Road
The latest updates from our missioanary travels in the States.
That’s right – we’re finished!!
Rebecca and I want to say THANK YOU! Because of your prayers, your encouragement and because of your financial support, we have now met the minimum budget requirements for getting to Holland. We are out of here! [Read more...]
Last week we let you know that we needed only $570 more in monthly commitments (19 more $30/month commitments). And you responded – man did you guys ever! Almost $300 in new pledges came within the 2 days after that email was sent. Just for some perspective, there have been points during these last two years where it has taken as many as 8 weeks to receive that amount in new commitments.
I’ll be honest, we were a little giddy last week. ;)
Now we come to it. We are at 96.45%. (Yes, the decimal does count.) All we need for final clearance is 10 more $30/month commitments. When those are made, we will put in a call to book our plane tickets, begin saying good-bye to our friends and family and set our eyes and our feet toward all the Lord has set before us in Holland.
It really does feel like the beginning of a dream. A dream that you all are making possible. A dream that we are trusting God to make real for His glory and for the sake of those lost in darkness in Holland.
Yes, now we come to it. So if you have ever thought about supporting our work in Holland, ever had a prayer for what God could and will do in that country, click here to make that $30/month commitment now.
The finish line is in sight.
These last few weeks have been incredible. Seriously. When we step back from the day-to-day grind and take a look at how it has all been coming together, we are amazed at what God is doing.
Today, I’m happy to tell you that we have 3 out of the 4 clearances we need to leave for Holland. And the last clearance, our monthly support, we expect to get in the next few weeks.
We are 93.25% of the way there! (Hey, every percentage point counts, right?!) That means we need about $570 more in monthly support. And that means we need 19 more $30/month commitments to get our final clearance, buy our plane tickets, and get ourselves to Holland.
We were hoping to have it all in by Easter – so many people partnered with us last week that we thought it was really going to happen! But we also knew (and still do) that our time is in the Lord’s hands so we weren’t the least bit discouraged when Monday morning rolled around and we knew we had more work to do.
Now, we are aiming to have raised our remaining support by April 30th. That’s 19 more commitments in 19 more days - and God can do it! If you want to partner with us on a monthly basis, click here to fill out the online commitment form now.
